How can I treat severe diaper rash with blistering and now raw skin?

My daughter has SEVERE diaper rash with blistering to where it's now raw skin. We went to the Doctor and he gave us some anti-fungal stuff, but it is doing nothing and I have been letting her go without diapers, giving warm baths without soap, changing her diaper constantly, but she's been having diarrhea also and it's not getting better. It's been a week. What should I do?

  • Butt paste is awesome stuff. Air really is the most important thing to treating and preventing diaper rash. Let her go for hours at a time if you can. You didn't say how old she is, but if she's still stationary just put a chux pad or mattress cover (anything waterproof) under her wherever you put her. Even pinning a recieving blanket on her (and keeping her off the furniture lol) will help.

  • Ask your doctor for silvadene cream...Its called Silersulfadiazene. The stuff is awesome. I have used it on my two youngest. It is a prescription and it has an antibiotic in it aswell as a pain reliever. It works within 10 minutes of applying it. It also will make changing and wiping the bottom alot easier and pain free. Usually you can call in for the script. Tell the doc or the nurse that the baby is in pain and you heard that there is a cream out there and give them the name. They should know exactly what it is. I am telling you it is AWESOME! I hope the little one's bottom starts healing and feeling better...Gooluck!

  • Aquaphor works wonders. My little boy had a bad reaction to an antibiotic, it blistered his little bottom to the point of bleeding within a day of taking it. That is what the pharmacist suggested and it was a life saver for us. Hope your little one is feeling better soon.

  • i have had to use vagisil and Bordeoux's(sp?) Butt Paste because it ended up being a yeast infection

  • Cornstarch ROCKS - spoon some into a old sock and works like a charm. Butt paste is also great.

  • My son had bleeding diaper rash, we dried his butt with a hair dryer set on low cool, and applied A&D ointment, a ton of the ointment globs and globs if it. I finally figured out that he was allergic to the Pampers swaddlers so once I cleared it up I changed diapers and havent had a prob since. Now when I notice some redness I glob on the A&D and it's gone by the next changeing
